The sun is out, and so are we, which means many of us may be susceptible to sunburn this season. There’s nothing worse than dealing with the painful effects of sunburn while trying to enjoy the summer.


Sometimes even the most avid sunscreen wearers and careful sun soakers fall victim to sunburn. Avoiding sunburn is the best thing to do in the summer, but mistakes happen, and we must be able to fix them.

In addition to being painful and uncomfortable, sunburn can also limit the time you can spend enjoying your summer. So, we’ve collated a few tips to help you recover from sunburn fast, should you suffer from it this summer.

Get An Over The Counter Hydrocortisone Cream

Hydrocortisone creams are what you apply on an itchy bug bite, and they work for sunburn too. These creams have skin healing and soothing ingredients, making them ideal, especially if your sunburn itches.

Take An Oatmeal Bath



There are many sunburn soothing soaks that you can draw for yourself, and an oatmeal bath is one of them. Adding ground colloidal oatmeal to your bath can help soothe the skin of inflammation and itching.


Dermatologists note that an oatmeal bath will be especially helpful a few days after you are sunburnt. These experts share that it is one of the best remedies for the ‘hell’s itch’ that you may experience on these days.

Drink Water



People feel dehydrated when sunburnt because fluids used to hydrate the body are soaked in the skin’s surface instead. You will need to drink plenty of water to keep from being dehydrated and feeling worse when sunburnt.


Put Your Aloe In The Fridge

Aloe vera gels are not the most groundbreaking sunburn healing products since everybody knows to use them. What plenty of people don’t know is that they’ll benefit much more from storing them in the fridge.

Aloe is already fantastic for reducing the pain and redness caused by inflammation. However, storing the aloe vera product in the refrigerator will increase the skin cooling and soothing sensations even more.


Avoid Extensive Skincare

Face masks, toners, exfoliators, and anti-aging products are a no-go when you are dealing with sunburnt skin. Keep your skincare minimal and free of lidocaine or benzocaine to avoid blisters, rashes, and flare-ups.
